"Given the lack of effective tools to assist people in their weight struggles, this book fills an important gap. It provides evidence-based strategies for weight management, addresses problematic thoughts and behaviors, and offers long-term lifestyle solutions for healthy eating, exercise, and maintaining a positive body image. This book is a valuable resource for both consumers struggling with weight issues and the clinicians who help them."

"Changing the way you think is key to losing weight and eating more mindfully. This straightforward, easy-to-read guide helps illuminate the thoughts and behaviors that may be standing in the way. You’ll learn essential skills that will take you far on your journey toward a healthier you!"
—Susan Albers, Psy.D., author of 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food, Eating Mindfully, and Eat, Drink, and Be Mindful
"This is a fantastic tool for individuals seeking to find an exit ramp from the freeways and cloverleaves of dieting, weight regain, and more dieting. Completing the program laid out in this book will help almost anyone get their life and eating habits back under control, determine a long-term path toward a healthier lifestyle, and develop a more contented acceptance of their own body. It should be a required tool in every weight management clinic on the planet, and I feel strongly that it should be required reading for every family practice physician and health care provider in North America."
